  • Training app
    Client: Budget: $10,000 – $15,000 (USD)

    After hiring 2 firms to develop a running training app for them, the client came across Devodrome. Given their previous experiences with developers who promised much but delivered very little at high costs, they were quite apprehensive and concerned to move forward but felt confidence that Devodrome just might deliver.

    The client valued working with Devodrome as a truly fantastic, amazing experience. The entire team is highly detailed oriented, very organized and an absolute pleasure to work with. They budgeted the project correctly and were very fair in their pricing. There were never any hidden surprises, requests for additional costs.

    The client wanted to redesign their existing fitness application, Thread n Shred and hired Devodrome for it. They assisted the client in getting it redone to the latest OS standards and with new graphics and also helped in launching it again once it was completed as a new version. Devodrome offered submission support.

    Overall they helped with design, develop and submit the app, going through the full process, but starting from an already existing source code which was optimised. View full description

    INTERVIEWED BY APPFUTURA ON AUG 16, 2017

    Please present yourself and your business.

    My name is Alan Haft. I am a nationally recognized personal finance expert and among all the projects that I handle, I created a treadmill training app as a means to give people the chance to be trained by a top fitness expert without ever having to leave their home or gym.

    Explain what your project was about.

    I’ve commissioned Devodrome to work on redesigning and updating the code of my Tread n Shred application, bringing it up to standard with the latest code version at the time.

    When did you work with Devodrome Technologies and for how long?

    We collaborated starting in 2015, for several months.

    Explain to what scope extend Devodrome was involved in your project.

    The Devodrome team took on the code I provided them with and completely overhauled (looks included) the application that I had given them. They also worked on other changes after they covered the initial project scope.

    How did you get to meet the Devodrome team and what led you to hiring them?

    Devodrome bid on my project on the platform formerly known as Elance and they convinced me with their previous examples of work and good communication that I should choose them from all the developers that applied.

    How was their project management?

    We communicated through the main Elance platform, as well as through the project management system which Devodrome put at my disposal (making a username for me on it). I was assigned an Account manager for daily communication and a Project manager which took care of handling the project, which I understood is standard for every project they work on. I was satisfied with the amount of detail that was put into the work and our exchanges. I was always put up to speed with progress, something that I find to be very important.

    Was the project completed as expected? Was the time and the budget the same you agreed on?

    There were ups and downs, which can always be the case when dealing with large scale projects, but I gave the team my confidence and they shined through, bringing the project to completion as originally planned. I also hired the Devodrome team to work on several other additions to the application.

    Did you find their expertise up to what you expected?

    Yes, they didn’t disappoint and they also learned along the way, where it was the case.

    Please highlight the best things of Devodrome, if anything.

    They are committed to deliver a project that both they and their client can be proud of. This is something I appreciate.

  • App for sports betting platform
    Client: Budget: more than $25,000 (USD)

    The client was looking for a reliable and experienced team able to take care of the mobile apps (iOS and Android) working in conjunction with their online betting tips platform (their own web services API).

    The client was looking for a reliable and experienced team able to take care of the mobile apps (iOS and Android) working in conjunction with their online betting tips platform (their own web services API). The mobile apps were developed targeting the users who rather prefer interacting with their services from the mobile devices.

    Once the first version was ready and published, the client (being happy with the outcome) wanted to add the possibility of actual betting based on the tips they provide. This implied integrating several 3rd party APIs in the app, and although each API had its own particularities, this could not affect the user experience.

    As any other ongoing collaboration (development), the thorough testing is of paramount importance, especially when new features are continuously added to a live app. We had to be sure that the newly launched versions of the app are free of bugs. Otherwise, if the users will find issues in the new version, all the added features and/or improvements made on the app will have no value (i.e. the new look of the app and new features/optimizations would not compensate the frustration of the users).

    INTERVIEWED BY APPFUTURA ON JUL 28, 2017

    Introduce yourself and you business

    I am the CTO of a company in the UK. We develop mobile and web products. In some cases, we subcontract outsourcing companies.

    What was your project about?

    We built two apps: one for iOS and one for Android. The iOS app was the big project and we worked on it for a couple of years - with a couple of releases.

    Afterwards, we wanted the Android app. Due to our business and the limmitations it had on Google play, we didn't have a big motivation for it at the beginning.

    Our business relates to sports and online bets. Our app is built around the concept of betting on the iOS version. The Android one is more informative due to the Play store limmitations.

    What was the scope assigned to Devodrome?

    They had to build the mobile products. Native iOS that would integrate with our APIs and implement the features that we requested. It was all coding.

    How did you meet Devodrome and what led you to hiring them?

    I knew the owner of the company because we worked together a long time ago. That's how the connection was made. They had a good portfolio and good developers. We liked that they could almost delegate one of their developers to our team.

    How was their Project Management?

    Their offer is that you can work on a fixed price. You agree on a set of deliverables, budget and timeframe. They manage the project and allocate their sources. It is kind of like a black box and you get your deliverable.

    However, we got a developer from them in our team, so we just integrated him with us. Therefore, we did our own project management.

    Regarding the time and the budget, was everything as expected?

    We had some flexibility. When there is a strict timeframe and set deliverables, there's usually a period of bug-fixing or changes. For us, that is not very flexible.

    We didn't like that kind of arrangement and that is why we essentially took one of their team members to work with us directly in our team.

    Was their expertise up to what you expected?

    We were quite happy with that. Everything was implemented as requested. No technological issues or problems that they could not tackle. Everything was as expected.

    What are the best things about Devodrome?

    I would say the quality of the product was good. Their flexibility and the arrengement they did worked well for us. In general, they were quite responsive and they really try to make things work to deliver good results. Everything was quite smooth.

    Any areas Devodrome could improve on?

    Maybe there were some problems with the payment. My CEO was not very happy because there were issues with US Dollar fluctuation and that was not well received.

    At some point, after a couple of years working together, they expected us to pay more because the change from our local currency to USD had changed. We did not identify it as our problem and, in the end, we ended up paying our normal price.

    Nothing to do with the service they provided.

  • Hilk
    Client: Budget: €10,000 – €15,000 (EUR)

    The biggest challenge was managing the online - offline usage and making the application as responsive as possible.

    The main objective was keeping everything in sync. Time is of an essence in this application, and notifications to users needed to go out as fast as possible.

    This was achieved using Google’s Firebase API and Realtime Database. This way the only things that might slow the app down are the smartphone performance, internet connection speed, servers.
